A ballerina bun hairstyle might look complicated, but it's actually quite simple do achieve. As long as your hair is long enough to pull into a ponytail, making a bun should be easy. It may take a little practice but your hair will be ballet-ready in no time.

You will begin by combing out your hair, making sure to brush out any existing knots or tangles. Then, lightly dampen your hair by spritzing with a spray bottle of water or by smoothing down hair with wet hands or a comb. Make sure you hair is only slightly damp. You don't want it to be dripping because it will be slippery and hard to work with.
